No, it's not Baaa Humbug time. It's my Sheep Seat. (Don't say that too fast by the way.)
This project had been hanging around since last year. Greenwood turned ash legs on a poplar seat, steam bent sweet chestnut back hoops finally went on this autumn, and then the seat cushion transpired last month.
It is actually what I intended it to look like, apart from the legs being too high - it should be a much more squat seat height. Still I think it's rather amusing and bizarre!
It's on show in The Gallery at Bishops Castle, Shropshire over Christmas - and is for sale.
